Thanks for the flowers, but what I REALLY want for Mother’s Day is…
May 10, 2017

Rest. Relaxation. Time to slow down.

Isn’t that true?

We live in a go, go, go culture with tons of pressure to constantly do more, achieve more, and buy more.

But why are we doing all that? 

The reason we do more, achieve more, and buy more is to feel happy.
To feel relaxed and content. (more…)

Who’s on your list?
May 3, 2017

In the 90s Oprah had a life coach on who said something that shocked her studio audience of suburban moms.

She had asked the audience to make a list of all the priorities in their lives.
Then she asked, “Where are you on that list?”
Lots of the audience did not have themselves on the list at all.

Then she made her outrageous suggestion: (more…)

When Good Moms Yell
April 26, 2017

“Isn’t yelling less damaging than hitting or spanking?”

Yelling is a natural response when your kids are rude, not listening, acting crazy or treating you poorly—or in any other situation that triggers your big feelings.

Even though you know it would be better if you could stay calm, it’s so hard.

Or you may even argue that yelling worked when we you were growing up, so why shouldn’t we do that today?

The bad news is that research is unequivocal. Harsh verbal discipline is linked with increased behavior problems, increased levels of aggression, and interpersonal problems in children.

Yelling makes your children less likely to cooperate with you and undermines your loving connection. 

You probably already know that yelling doesn’t work.

You can see how it scares your children. It puts them into their “fight, flight, or freeze” stress response, making it impossible for them to learn whatever it is your trying to teach them.

What’s more, it teaches them to yell!

Yelling often almost guarantees that your child will have an attitude by the time they’re ten and yelling and conflict will be the norm in the teen years.

Yet, it feels almost impossible to “just stop”…

Until now.

I’m writing this to you as someone with a HUGE temper. When my daughters were toddlers it felt like I was triggered ten times a day.

I know how hard it is.
And I’ve found the system to help you stop.

Through my own work, my work with my clients, and the work I’ve done with thousands of other moms, I’ve developed a step-by-step process that will help you stop your yelling habit for good.

I’ve created a course that is easy for you to create this radical (at the root) change:

The Stop Yelling Formula.

I invite you to check it out. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Now it’s your turn.

Do you yell? Do you want to stop? Start the conversation in the comments.

Thank you so very much for reading my friend! I hope that my sharing helps you.

With warmth & lovingkindness,

A quick decision and 5 minutes that totally changed my day
April 5, 2017

Today I was on my regular route when I made a decision that changed the course of my day. I listened to this little voice inside of me. I went down the path to the stream and I…

…hopped on rocks.

Yup, that was me – jumping from big boulder to rock to boulder in the stream.

You may be asking, what is the point of sharing this?

The point is that I made a choice to PLAY.

Care LESS about my kids?!?
March 30, 2017

Just yesterday I asked my client, “How would you respond if they were 20-year old exchange students?”

She was frustrated because her 5-year old twins’ potty mouth problem had reached a peak. When it came to the dinner table, it was completely unacceptable.

So what to do?
